What cigarettes do you smoke?

If this were a thread about the stupidity of smoking then I would agree with you. This is a thread about what brand people prefer to smoke. Let's attempt to keep the discussion to its original intent. We all know smoking is unhealthy and are reminded of that fact every day. Rather than barging into the smoker's club and putting up anti-smoking signs on the walls, start your own thread. We've made our decision and we are entitled to it.

Doing something when you know it's bad for you and can potentially kill you -- yes, that is stupid. Someone smart would never do that.
Einstein smoked a pipe, musta been one dumb guy huh.

Can't you put some kind of age limit on this board-- like the completion of puberty.

Hey, don't pull that age crap, its maturity that matters. I would give a huge amount to be able to go back and meet Einstein as well as all the other great scientists/artists/writers/musicians of the past centuries.

Preferably Bali Hai, getting hard to find tho.
And to all you preachers about not smoking: I smoke because I want to. I do not drink... smoking may be dangerous to my health, but... as far as I know, no one has yet been killed by smoking and driving. Better odds here than driving and drinking, driving and texting, driving and yakking on a cell phone. Anyone checked lately what they put in their system by the simple act of breathing? I know it is not just oxygen. Anyway, I do not tell anyone to smoke, or not to smoke, or how to live their life. Frankly I do not care. If you are an adult you can do whatever pleases you, as long as you do not break any laws or infringe on the rights of others to do as they please.
If you want, put that in your pipe....

I can't understand smoking cigarettes. I understand smoking crack more than I do smoking cigarettes. They don't even make you feel good, at least crack does that. Cigarettes just take the bad feeling away that you get when you're not smoking cigarettes; a feeling that you wouldn't have if you never started in the first place.

But just to clarify, I think smoking crack is one of the worst things you can do. It seems to me anyone who starts smoking crack is just someone who has given up on life.
What I'm saying is I understand the reason for smoking crack moreso than I do the reason for smoking cigarettes.

leroy, it is irrelevant wether you understand it or not. People will make decisions you do not understand. It is my choice! And if anyone decides to use illegal narcotics, that is their choice, and they have to deal with the consquences. If my smoking has consequences, I will deal with it.

This is factually incorrect:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1353943

The effects of nicotine, like those of other drugs with potential for abuse and dependence, are centrally mediated. The impact of nicotine on the central nervous system is neuroregulatory in nature, affecting biochemical and physiological functions in a manner that reinforces drug-taking behavior. Dose-dependent neurotransmitter and neuroendocrine effects occur as plasma nicotine levels rise when a cigarette is smoked. Circulating levels of norepinephrine and epinephrine increase, and the bioavailability of dopamine is altered as well. Among the neuroendocrine effects are release of arginine vasopressin, beta-endorphin, adrenocorticotropic hormone, and cortisol. Notably, several of these neurochemicals are psychoactive and/or known to modulate behavior. Thus, affective states or cognitive demands may be favorably modified (at least temporarily) by nicotine intake. When nicotine is inhaled, the neuroregulatory effects just described are immediately available and the reinforcing effects of the drug are maximized.
